    What is the best format to play movies for a media center application?

    What I want is to take my dvds and rip them to my computer and play them with my media center server in my home theater. Currently I use DVD Shrink and Nero. I know how to get the iso and vob files using DVD shrink, but which program will allow me to convert an iso or vob file to a file that would best play off the hard drive? mpeg? avi? divx? ....? I know, I could just put a dvd in the player and play the movie, but I want everything on my hard drive. Space is not a problem.

    I just don't know where the best place to start is. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply. I just installed AutoGK, so far it looks like a strait forward program. It looks like on the input file it wants one file, but I have maybe 6-7 vob files just for the video, should I use a different format? Or will any one vob file work?

    Put first IFO file to input.
    Edit: Then it can read the dvd's information.
